Ronald Reagan: "Now
you hear a lot of jokes
about Silent Cal
Coolidge, but I think the
joke is on the people that
make jokes because if
you look at his record, he
cut taxes four times. We
had probably the greatest
growth and prosperity
that we've ever known."

Sarah Palin: "one of our
most underrated
presidents . . . Americans
are awakening again to
the wisdom of President
Coolidge . . ."

"He wrote simply,
innocently, artlessly,"
H. L. Mencken once
noted regarding
Coolidge's prose, "He
forgot all the literary
affectations and set down
his ideas exactly as they
came into his head. The
result was a bald, but
strangely appealing
piece of writing—a
composition of almost
Lincolnian austerity and
beauty. The true
Vermonter was in every
line of it."

Grover Norquist:
"We're looking for
another Coolidge."

Tim Naftali, Director of
the Richard Nixon
Presidential Library
and Museum:
"If you want to balance:
it's Coolidge versus
[Franklin D.] Roosevelt in
dealing with
the economy."

Tucker S.
III: "The two
most successful
Republican presidents in
the last century were
Calvin Coolidge and
Ronald Reagan."

Amity Shlaes: "Reagan
himself admired
Coolidge. It's time the
rest of us
did too."

R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr:
"one of the most
successful presidents. He
reversed the economic
insolvency of President
Woodrow Wilson, and set
the economy on the road
to growth . . ."

Mark Steyn: "If you're
like me and your idea of
a conservative president
is Calvin Coolidge . . ."

George Will says:
"Calvin Coolidge, the last
president with whom I fully
agreed . . ."

Robert Merry: "The
Coolidge years represent
the country's most
distilled experiment in
supply-side economics—
and the doctrine's most
conspicuous success."

Will Cain says: "Calvin
Coolidge is my favorite
